Prominent Leave campaigners have upped the ante on the government following the EU’s new deadline of two weeks for a bumper Brexit bill to be agreed in order to progress talks to trade.
Nigel Farage took to Twitter to reject the “huge ransom” and insisted that it was “time to say enough”.
Conservative MP John Redwood meanwhile insisted that “we should not pay for talks, and there is no need to pay for trade either”.
It is important that UK negotiators are not tempted to make offers on money or on the rights of the European Court against eventual promises to talk about trade and the wider relationship. We should not pay for talks, and there is no need to pay for trade either.
Meanwhile former Tory Leader Iain Duncan Smith told The Telegraph: “They think we blinked in Florence and now they believe we will blink again. We must not blink.”
We at Westmonster will keep reminding people that 65% of Brits reject a Brexit bill of £20 billion, let alone any more. The government must stand firm.
